How To calculate Resistors Connected In Series And Parallel

Resistors can be connected in series or in parallel. Each type of connection has different way of calculating its total equivalent resistance. In this article you will learn: How to calculate the total equivalent resistance of resistors connected in series. The effect of resistors  in series. How to calculate the…

Magneto Resistor

  A magneto resistor is a resistor of which its electrical resistance varies or changes as a result of presence of external magnetic field. A magnetic field is a region in space where the effect of magnetic force is felt by a body/object placed near it. Magneto resistors have a…

VARISTOR:A Type of Resistor

VARISTOR A varistor is a type of resistor in which its resistance is dependent on the voltage applied. The word is composed of parts of the words “VARiable resISTOR” i.e their resistance varies. The resistance of the varistor decreases when the voltage increases. They are made of semiconductors elements. It…

Photo Resistor-Light Dependent Resistor

Some resistors are dependent on physical quantities like light, heat, magnetic force, etc. These resistors can be divided into 4 types which includes: • Photo resistor (LDR) • Thermistors (NTC and PTC) • Varistor (VDR) • Magneto resistor (MDR)   Photo Resistor Photo resistor is an electronic component whose resistivity…
